St. Mark's is a growing parish with three Sunday services and a large children's and youth program. Each service has a different "feel" from contemplative (7:45AM), to community and intergenerational (9 AM), to traditional Episcopal worship with organ and choir (11 AM). We just completed a new Fellowship Center, which serves as a community and worship space for the 9 AM service.
Founded 1849 by nearby St. James School, St. Marks' sits on a campus along Lappans Road in historic Washington County. Antietam Battlefield is only 5 miles south and the Moutains rise on both horizons. We host The Growing Tree preschool, regular Zumba Classes, and many other community activities.
Our Core values summarize our approach to our Christian Faith. Please let us know how we can assist you in your growth in Christ!
